Rig had history of spills, fires before big 1

Associated Press
April 30, 2010

During its nine years at sea, the Deepwater Horizon oil rig operated by BP suffered a series of spills, fires — even a collision — because of equipment failure, human error and bad weather. It also drilled the world's deepest offshore well.

But Deepwater Horizon's lasting legacy will undoubtedly be the environmental damage it caused after it exploded and sank, killing 11 crew and releasing an estimated 210,000 gallons of oil a day into the Gulf of Mexico.

What likely destroyed the rig in a ball of fire last week was a failure -- or multiple failures -- 5,000 feet below. That's where drilling equipment met the sea bed in a complicated construction of pipes, concrete and valves that gave way in a manner that no one has yet been able to explain.

Oil services contractor Halliburton Inc. said in a statement Friday that workers had finished cementing the well's pipes 20 hours before the rig went up in flames. Halliburton is named as a defendant in most of the more than two dozen lawsuits filed by Gulf Coast people and businesses claiming the oil spill could ruin them financially. Without elaborating, one lawsuit filed by an injured technician on the rig claims that Halliburton improperly performed its job in cementing the well, "increasing the pressure at the well and contributing to the fire, explosion and resulting oil spill."

Remote-controlled blowout preventers designed to apply brute force to seal off a well should have kicked in. But they failed to activate after the explosion.

Scott Bickford, a lawyer for several Deepwater Horizon workers who survived the blast, said he believes a "burp" of natural gas rose to the rig floor and was sucked into machinery, leading to the explosion.

Halliburton's said "it is premature and irresponsible to speculate on any specific causal issues."

Before last week's catastrophe, Deepwater Horizon's most recent hiccup occurred in Nov. 2005, when the rig — under contract with BP — spilled 212 barrels of an oil-based lubricant due to equipment failure and human error. That spill was probably caused by not screwing the pipe tightly enough and not adequately sealing the well with cement, as well as a possible poor alignment of the rig, according to records maintained by the federal Minerals Management Service.

Following that spill, MMS inspectors recommended increasing the amount of cement used during this process and applying more torque when screwing in its pipes.

Experts say the number of safety incidents experienced by Deepwater Horizon isn't unusual for an industry operating in harsh conditions. And it is difficult to draw any connections between those problems and last week's deadly explosion, they say.

"These are big, floating cities," said Tyler Priest, a historian of offshore oil and gas exploration. "You're always going to have minor equipment failure and human error, and of course they're operating in a hurricane prone environment."

Because vessels like the Deepwater Horizon operate 24 hours a day, Coast Guard officials said minor equipment problems appear frequently. But if they go unfixed such incidents could mushroom into bigger concerns.

- In Feb. 2002, just months after the rig was launched from a South Korean shipyard, it spilled 267 barrels of oil into the Gulf after a hose failed, according to MMS records.

- In June 2003, the rig floated off course in high seas, resulting in the release of 944 barrels of oil. MMS blamed bad weather and poor judgment by the captain. A month later, equipment failure and high currents led to the loss of 74 barrels of oil.

- In January 2005, human error caused another accident. A crane operator forgot he was in the midst of refueling a crane, and 15 gallons of overflowing diesel fuel sparked a fire.

The rig was being used by BP during all of the above incidents.

The Coast Guard, which is supposed to ensure the vessels are seaworthy, keeps its own set of safety records on the Deepwater Horizon.

From 2000 to 2010, the Coast Guard issued six enforcement warnings and handed down one civil penalty and a notice of violation to Deepwater Horizon, agency records show.

On 18 different occasions during that period the Coast Guard cited the vessel for an "acknowledged pollution source." No further details about the type of pollution were immediately available.

The agency also conducted 16 investigations of incidents involving everything from fires to slip-and-fall accidents.

Steven Sutton, who oversees offshore drilling inspectors in the Coast Guard's New Orleans office, said the number of accidents and incidents reported on the Deepwater Horizon didn't strike him as unusual.

A collision with a towing vessel reported on June 26, 2003 could have created safety problems over the long term if the $95,000 damage to the rig's hull wasn't adequately repaired, Sutton said. The collision risked compromising the rig's watertight integrity or weakening the structure that supports the drilling operation, he said.

Guy Cantwell, a spokesman for the rig's owner Transocean Ltd., said Friday that the Swiss-based company planned to conduct its own investigation of what caused last week's explosion.

"Any prior incidents were investigated," he said. "Any speculation that they are related to the Deepwater Horizon incident is speculation."

Both Transocean and BP PLC cited comments made Monday by Lars Herbst, the regional director for the Minerals Management Service, who said the companies had a good history of compliance.

Last week's blowout was "an aberration in the history of the Gulf for the last 40 years" during which the industry has refined and automated much of the work on the estimated 3,500 rigs currently operating in the Gulf, said Priest, a professor and director of Global Studies at the Bauer College of Business at the University of Houston.

"The industry is going to learn a lot from this. That's what happens in these kinds of disaster," he said, citing the 1988 explosion of the Piper Alpha rig in the North Sea and the 1979 blowout of Mexico's IXTOC I in the eastern Gulf.

Britain overhauled its safety requirements after the North Sea incident, which killed 167 men, and companies have since spent billions upgrading emergency equipment and improving their operating procedures.

Norway, which has huge oil and gas reserves in the North Sea, requires rigs to have at least two independent systems to trigger the blowout preventer.

Deepwater Horizon was considered state-of-the-art when it was built in 2001 by Hyundai Heavy Industries, Cantwell said. It was designed to withstand 118-mile an hour winds and waves as high as 41 feet. Last year, it set a world record for the deepest oil and gas well when it drilled 35,055 feet into the Gulf of Mexico.

Cantwell said the $560 million semi-submersible model has been superseded by a new design capable of drilling 40,000 feet down in water as deep as 12,000 feet.

Gulf Oil Spill Fight Turns to Chemicals Team Hopes Oil Dispersants Will Limit Damage on LandMain Content

To combat the massive oil spill from BP’s wrecked drilling site, cleanup crews are dropping huge quantities of chemical dispersant into the Gulf of Mexico in an urgent effort to stop as much of the slick as possible from reaching land.

(See Related, “Oil Spill Hits Gulf Coast Habitats”)

This could well be the single largest deployment of dispersants against an oil spill in U.S. history, said Richard Gaudiosi, president of the Delaware Bay and River Cooperative in Linwood, Pennsylvania.

The joint federal-industry response team responsible for the cleanup effort reports that nearly 140,000 gallons (529,928 liters) of dispersants have been used so far, with an additional 51,000 gallons (193,056 liters) available. Responders also have been trying controlled burns and have deployed long lines of inflatable booms, but they have said the chemicals have proven the most effective method of attacking the spill so far.

"Even on the Exxon Valdez spill, dispersants weren't used all that readily," Gaudiosi said. The notorious 1989 tanker disaster, up until now the worst oil spill in U.S. history, dumped 11 million gallons (41.6 million liters) on the remote Prince William Sound in Alaska.

But the spill now spreading from the site of the April 20 explosion that destroyed the Deepwater Horizon oil rig, which could reach the size of the Valdez spill in 52 days at its current rate, threatens not only wildlife refuges, ecologically sensitive areas, and fisheries but also densely populated and developed waterfronts and resort areas.

(See Pictures: Gulf Oil Spill Hits Land—And Wildlife)

The oil slick touched land Thursday night in Louisiana and was expected to reach shore in Mississippi and Alabama this weekend and in Pensacola and the Florida panhandle by Monday.

Breaking oil into droplets

Oil dispersants have been available to combat spills since the mid-1980s. They are detergent-like chemicals that break up oil slicks on the surface of the water into smaller droplets, which can then be broken down by bacteria in the water and by other natural processes. Dispersants also help prevent the oil droplets from coalescing to form other slicks.

According to the U.S. National Research Council, oil spill dispersants do not actually reduce the total amount of oil entering the environment. Rather, they change the chemical and physical properties of the oil, making it more likely to mix into the water column than to contaminate the shoreline.

The NRC report says that evaluating the environmental trade-offs associated with

dispersant use is “one of the most difficult decisions that oil spill responders and natural resources managers face during a spill.” The reason is the increased oil exposure for fish, as well as for corals and creatures that live in the lowest level of the water, such as oysters, the report said.

"Dispersant only alters the destination of the toxic compounds in the oil," redirecting its impact from feathered and fur-bearing animals on shore to organisms in the water column itself and on the seafloor, Richard Charter, senior policy adviser for marine programs at the conservation group Defenders of Wildlife, said in an email.

"No good answers to a mess this big, only degrees of damage to various life-forms," Charter said.

(See Gulf Oil Spill Pictures: Aerial Views Show Leak's Size)

Dispersants are specially designed to have low toxicity to marine organisms, so any environmental impact they do have has more to do with the breakup of the oil into droplets than with the dispersants themselves, said Robin Rorick, director of marine and security at the American Petroleum Institute.

When the oil at the surface is treated with the chemicals, it initially disperses within the upper 30 feet (9 meters) of the water column, according to a briefing paper distributed by the Deepwater Horizon response team.

An underwater chemical experiment

The dispersants are being applied by aircraft over the Gulf of Mexico. Helicopters and ships also can be used, and the joint federal-industry response team, led by the U.S. Coast Guard, said yesterday it is planning also to apply dispersants underwater, directly to the source of the leak.

This technique is considered experimental and has never been attempted at a depth of 5,000 feet (1,524 meters). If BP and the Coast Guard go through with the plan, the undersea dispersants would probably be applied by robotic submarines, also known as remotely operated vehicles, or ROVs.

It would be yet another job for the submarines at a site that is far too deep, and where pressures are far too great, for human divers to venture.

(See "Rig Explosion Shows Risks in Key Oil Frontier.")

The subs also are monitoring the well site and have been deployed—unsuccessfully so far—to try to stop the leak. With BP saying it may take weeks or months to stop the flow, the need for more effective ways to disperse the oil and protect the shore has become urgent.

Rorick said undersea application probably is being considered because dispersants are most effective when they are applied to freshly leaked oil.

"If the oil is out there for a long period of time and it gets really mixed with the water ... the dispersants are less effective," he explained.

The Rothschild Cabal and Weather Control

"Just as the people of Iceland, Venezuela, Iran and China are all asking what is causing their problems with supposed nature, there are issues which are simply not discussed or even broached in the Rothschild controlled media. One has to do much research with alternative media sources to even begin to arrive at some ideas on what is happening around the world to cause such enormous trouble with the several nations which thought to speak out and oppose the ruler ship of the Rothschild Cabal masters and their US puppet."

The Goldsmiths—Part CXXXVIII

Posted Friday, 23 April 2010
By R. D. Bradshaw

The prior Goldsmiths (137) was on Iceland and its bout to break free of the power of the Rothschild Cabal bankers in Britain which are obsessed with the idea that the people of Iceland must be excessively taxed to pay off the losses in the Cabal owned/controlled Icelandic banks, just like the suckers in North America and Europe are doing. While still in a preliminary vein, it is prudent to look at some history and current events now affecting perhaps every person in America as well as in the rest of the world.

For a start, let’s revisit some more troubling events from little Iceland. Here, the London Guardian of Mar 21, 2010 had this by Gudjon Helgason on Volcano erupts in Iceland, hundreds evacuated: “Authorities evacuated hundreds of people after a volcano erupted beside a glacier in southern Iceland, Iceland's civil protection agency said Sunday, but there were no immediate reports of damage or injuries. The eruption occurred around 11:30 p.m. Saturday (7:30 p.m. EDT) beside the Eyjafjallajokull glacier, the fifth largest in Iceland. Authorities initially said the eruption was below the glacier, triggering fears that it could lead to flooding from glacier melt, but scientists conducting an aerial survey in daylight located the eruption and said it did not occur below ice…

“A state of emergency has been declared in communities near the 100-square-mile (259-square-kilometer) glacier, and three Red Cross centers were set up for evacuees in the village of Hella… A European volcanic island in the North Atlantic, Iceland is largely an arctic desert with mountains, glaciers and volcanoes and agricultural areas in the lowlands close to the coastline. The last time the volcano erupted was in the 1820s.”

The London Telegraph of Apr 14, 2010 had a follow up story on Iceland volcano: hundreds evacuated over eruption risk. The article said that some 800 people near the Eyjafjallajokull volcano were evacuated after seismic activity suggested it erupted for the second time. The volcano, 75 miles east of Reykjavik, erupted on March 20, after almost 200 years of silence. The report said that the volcano is under a glacier. If a serious eruption happens, there could be bad flooding.

Already, volcanic ash covers much of Europe to delay or halt airline traffic (this is bringing huge economic losses to Europe and especially with the airlines). As far as Iceland, the eruption is proving to be even more terrible. The toxic fumes from the eruptions present major health problems to both humans and animals in Iceland. People and animals must stay indoors as much as possible. Many crops have been hit hard. The Icelandic economy has been and will be further devastated if the eruption continues or intensifies.

There were a couple of other news reports this past week which also seem to have a bearing on what is going on with Iceland’s volcanoes. First, a report from Yahoo News of Apr 20, 2010 addressed some strange mysterious lightning associated with the eruption. The article said that the Eyjafjallajokull volcano “continues to produce spectacular visual effects. Photographers have captured images of lightning, seemingly erupting directly from the volcano. The bolts may look like Hollywood special effects, but they're very much the real deal. No CGI required. But as LiveScience reports, they're also still a ‘bit of a mystery.’”

There is another interesting issue involved with Iceland. Drudge of Apr 21, 2010 had a report that the Eyjafjallajokull volcano has a nearby sister volcano even larger named Katla. There is concern that it may too explode. It’s even larger and with a much larger glacier. It would really create havoc in worldwide ash if it erupts.

But along with Iceland, there are a handful of other nations which too are balking at taking orders from the Rothschild Cabal bosses in London. Probably, the most important of these are Iran and Venezuela (with some increasing recent concern about China since she has been a big Iran supporter). Almost regularly, the Rothschild controlled media is bombarding the public about the evils of Iran and Venezuela and their leaders.


The one receiving the most attention has been Iran. Along with telling us about the evils of Iran and why she must be bombed into oblivion, the Rothschild media has also revealed numerous reports of internal protests and opposition from some part of the Iranian people over their government and its leaders.

Long ago, I learned that anytime one of the non-Rothschild controlled nations starts having internal political trouble, and particularly from student protests (students are always easy to motivate to protest), there is a high probability that the funding and direction of the protests are coming from the Rothschild Cabal powers with the CIA, MI 6 (from Britain) and the Mossad (from Israel). These spy agencies all work for and serve the Rothschild Cabal masters. The US government, thru the CIA, funds most of their activities.

Along with the internal problems in Iran, the Rothschild media has told us about another interesting little development in Iran. It is the almost continuous state of drought the nation has faced in the last several years.

On Iran’s drought problems, The USDA FSA had this report on IRAN: Another Disappointing Wheat Harvest Ahead in 2009/10: “The widely dispersed winter grain production regions in Iran have generally experienced more favorable growing conditions in 2009/10 than during last year’s extremely severe drought. Normal to above normal rainfall in the important rain fed wheat growing areas of northwest Iran has helped improve overall grain production prospects this year. However, drought conditions have persisted in important southern and western irrigated growing areas, ensuring the nation will have another below-average national grain harvest in 2009/10.

“The dwindling supply of irrigation water in several major producing provinces has resulted in regional declines in grain area and much reduced crop yield potential in the affected areas. Despite regional drought, total wheat production is expected to increase roughly 20 percent over last year, though still resulting in the second lowest harvest in the past six years. The disappointing 2009/10 wheat harvest could lead to significant additional grain imports, following on the record 8.5 million tons estimated to have been imported in 2008/09.”

Venezuela and Chavez

Along with the huge number of internal problems now occurring with Iran, Venezuela seems to also have more than its fair share of troubles—including a catastrophic drought which now is causing political troubles for Chavez. had a March 22, 2010 report on the crisis in Venezuela in an article by Nikolas Kozloff on El Nino in Venezuela: Hugo Chavez’s Katrina Moment?

Kozloff’s article addressed the Venezuelan drought and likened it for Chavez to the Katrina crisis for George W. Bush of some years ago. He noted that Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez has been in power for more than ten years, during which time he has deflected “numerous electoral challenges, a recall effort, a coup d’etat and even an oil lock out.” Yet, he has demonstrated enormous staying power throughout all of these political crises.

But, per the story, some say that Chávez’s “luck” may have finally run out because this current devastating drought has ravaged Venezuela and the government has been forced to undertake conservation measures for water and electricity. Some are holding Chávez responsible for the energy crunch. Some say that the drought could exact a heavy toll on the Venezuelan president in September’s legislative elections.

The article then asked what was causing the crisis and said: “There may not be a clear cut answer to this question, and different people provide differing interpretations. Chávez critics say that the government has neglected the power grid and failed to invest in hydrology systems and aqueducts in order to expand power production and satisfy increased consumption.” However, Chavez blames weather changes from El Niño as the cause.

Currently, state-owned oil, aluminum and steel companies are obliged to "rationalize" their electric use. Steel company Sidor, a large manufacturer, has been running at less than 50 percent capacity. In Caracas, the city’s main water utility announced it would reduce water supply by 25 percent per person. Chávez has urged the public to limit its showers to three minutes. "Some people sing in the shower, in the shower half an hour," he said. "No kids, three minutes is more than enough. I've counted, three minutes, and I don't stink."

The article notes that “thousands have taken to the streets to protest the water and electricity crunch. Some have burned electricity bills while others brandish surge-damaged blenders, televisions and stereos outside the state utility company. What’s more, the energy crunch has now had a serious political spillover effect: in a daring move, former Chávez aides such as Defense Minister Raul Isaias Baduel have signed a petition asking for the President to resign.” The statement said that after 11 years in power, “it was important for Chávez to resign so as to protect the country from a continuation of various ‘ills.’”


As long as the Chinese were accepting US dollars and IOU paper for the sale of its goods to the Rothschild controlled US, everything was peaches and cream with China. But since the Rothschild Cabal imposed deflation and depression, most Americans have not had the money to be buying many Chinese goods. Accordingly, China is beginning to backtrack in its purchases of US debt paper. Cabal agents like Tim Geithner have been making frequent trips to China to beg her/force her to keep buying US paper.

But China too is having her problems with rain and earthquakes. Most of Southern China is in a serious drought which may soon prove to be catastrophic in food production. Reportedly, the drought there started in 2009. It is the worst in 100 years. Some 61 million people are affected and the government is hauling in water by trucks to dispense to people who line up with containers to get the water. had a report on Dry Spell Hits where it hurts which said: “Drought is sparking fears of inflation and food shortages in Southwest China, report Wang Huazhong in Guizhou, and Peng Yining and Li Yingqing in Yunnan… The ongoing drought, which has lasted since last autumn and been dubbed the worst in a century, has dried out all of the village's water tanks. Zhu's wife must walk three kilometers on snaking mountain paths to fetch turbid water three times a day for her family and cattle…

“By the end of March, Guizhou had seen more than 916,000 hectares of crops affected by drought, causing a direct loss of almost 3 billion yuan ($440 million), according to figures released by the provincial agricultural commission. The commission's publicity director, Zheng Chuanlou, also told China Daily that crops to be harvested this summer, such as rape and wheat, are "doomed", with most areas likely to see dramatically reduced or even zero output. Already about eight million people just in Yunnan province are suffering a grain shortage, said Wang Shufen, director of the Yunnan provincial civil administration, who told China News Service that five million had ‘no financial income and are relying on government handouts’.

“The situation has prompted fears among analysts that low output of cash crops - rapeseed, medicinal materials, tobacco, sugar, tea and flowers - will push up prices nationwide. To stabilize prices and curb the potential inflation, the central government ordered the transfer of 1.7 million tons of grain reserves to the drought-hit region, Shen Leihai, a senior State official responsible for China's food security, told Southern Weekend, a newspaper based in Guangzhou…

“However, time is running out. Although meteorology authorities predict the drought will last until the end of May, in just four weeks China will enter a long, hot summer, by which time it will be too late to plant. Farmers say getting seedlings ready to be replanted in the fields takes 40 days. Even if the seedlings are successfully planted, the drought is also sparking conflicts over how much of the region's limited water resources should be used to irrigate them.”

Along with the impact of drought, China has just been hit with a severe earthquake about Apr 13, 2010, per a story by Malcolm Moore in the London Telegraph. This one, at 7.1 magnitude, struck in Western China near Tibet. Reports say 1,200 people were killed and 12,000 injured.

Just as the people of Iceland, Venezuela, Iran and China are all asking what is causing their problems with supposed nature, there are issues which are simply not discussed or even broached in the Rothschild controlled media. One has to do much research with alternative media sources to even begin to arrive at some ideas on what is happening around the world to cause such enormous trouble with the several nations which thought to speak out and oppose the ruler ship of the Rothschild Cabal masters and their US puppet. For some possibilities, let’s review some history.

Secretary of Defense William Cohen

On April 28, 1997, Secretary of Defense William Cohen attended a counterterrorism conference at the University of Georgia in Athens, Georgia, as sponsored by former US Senator Sam Nunn. Reuters and a number of sources quoted the DoD News Briefing, with Secretary of Defense William S. Cohen, Q&A at the Conference on Terrorism, Weapons of Mass Destruction, and U.S. Strategy (Subsequently, the DOD reportedly deleted this page and quotation in its sources; but the quotation was heavily covered in the media at that time, to now include cnet news which reportedly confirms it). has this on the verbatim transcript of the question and answer session as posted at the DOD web site:

“After some introductory remarks about the conference, Cohen takes questions from the media in attendance. A reporter asks a question based on the fake anthrax letters that had recently been sent to B'nai Brith. Cohen gives a strange answer, using the occasion to mention the exotic weapons being developed by terrorists (as well as--one would assume--governments). Here's the exchange, taken verbatim from the transcript posted on the Defense Department's Website:

“Q: Let me ask you specifically about last week's scare here in Washington, and what we might have learned from how prepared we are to deal with that (inaudible), at B'nai Brith.

“A: Well, it points out the nature of the threat. It turned out to be a false threat under the circumstances. But as we've learned in the intelligence community, we had something called -- and we have James Woolsey here to perhaps even address this question about phantom moles. The mere fear that there is a mole within an agency can set off a chain reaction and a hunt for that particular mole which can paralyze the agency for weeks and months and years even, in a search. The same thing is true about just the false scare of a threat of using some kind of a chemical weapon or a biological one. There are some reports, for example, that some countries have been trying to construct something like an Ebola Virus, and that would be a very dangerous phenomenon, to say the least. Alvin Toeffler has written about this in terms of some scientists in their laboratories trying to devise certain types of pathogens that would be ethnic specific so that they could just eliminate certain ethnic groups and races; and others are designing some sort of engineering, some sort of insects that can destroy specific crops. Others are engaging even in an eco- type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves.

“So there are plenty of ingenious minds out there that are at work finding ways in which they can wreak terror upon other nations. It's real, and that's the reason why we have to intensify our efforts, and that's why this is so important.”

Well, all this Goldsmiths can say here is that if it’s going on (and it is, per former Secretary of Defense Cohen), we can bank on that the Rothschild Cabal and the US DOD’s DARPA agency are actively involved. Whatever can be said of Cohen, he was no fool. He knew what he was talking about. It is manifestly clear that he knew what was happening because of firsthand knowledge from his work in the Pentagon.

Some More History

But Cohen was not the Lone Ranger on this theme. Long before he came along, others addressed the idea of using several different forms of technology to be able to create man-made earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and weather alterations. Without burdening the reader with this host of reports, here are just a few as taken from an article by Ray Bilger on Human Engineered Earthquakes at

One of the earliest forms of this idea surfaced in the writings and perhaps even some experiments by Nicola Tesla on Controlled Earthquakes in 1935. Per Bilger, they were labeled by Tesla as “the art of telegeodynamics.” Tesla was able to cause “rhythmical vibrations to pass through the Earth with almost no loss of energy,” and he could “convey these mechanical effects to the greatest terrestrial distances and produce all kinds of unique effects.”

Next, Bilger transitioned his discussion to a US Senate Sub-Committee hearing in 1975 where the Chairman, Senator Claiborne Pell, said: "We need a treaty now... before the military leaders of the world start directing storms, manipulating climates and inducing earthquakes against their enemies." As Bilger concluded, Pell must have known something on this subject to prompt his words.

Going forward to December 10, 1976, Bilger wrote: “the General Assembly of the United Nations approved the 'Convention of the Prohibition of Military or any Other Hostile Use of Environmental Modification Techniques,' and issued a report. Again, such a report would not have been issued if there were not technology in place capable of environmental modification, including the ability to induce earthquakes.”

Bilger then quoted the June 5, 1977, New York Times which described the great earthquake which destroyed Tangshan, China on July 28, 1976, and killed over 650,000 people. The Times said: “Just before the first tremor at 3:42 am, the sky lit up like daylight. The multi-hued lights, mainly white and red, were seen up to 200 miles away. Leaves on many trees were burned to a crisp and growing vegetables were scorched on one side, as if by a fireball.” Bilger then raised the question if these lights could be associated with Tesla technology? (On this question, it must be noted that the Icelandic volcano at Eyjafjallajokull has been having associated lightning with it. Live Science/Yahoo news called the lightning phenomenon a mystery.)

Next Bilger came to January of 1978, when Dr. Andrija Puharich, MD, LL.D, issued a detailed research paper entitled “Global Magnetic Warfare - A Layman's View of Certain Artificially Induced Unusual Effects on The Planet Earth During 1976 and 1977.” In his paper, Dr. Puharich stated, "Of the many great earthquakes of 1976, there is one that demands special attention - the July 28, 1976 Tangshan, China earthquake." The January 1978 edition of Specula magazine ran an article which described an incredibly profound phenomenon that could be produced within the Earth by what is called the “Tesla Effect.”

According to the article, “electromagnetic signals of certain frequencies can be transmitted through the Earth to form standing waves in the Earth itself. In certain cases, coherence to this standing wave can be induced wherein a fraction of the vast, surging electromagnetic current of the Earth itself feeds into and augments the induced standing wave. In other words, "much more energy is now present in the standing wave that the... amount being fed in from the Earth's surface." By interferometer techniques, giant standing waves can be combined to produce a focused beam of very great energy. This can be used to produce earthquakes induced at distant aiming points.”

Bilger then cited Dr. Peter Beter (a former official with the Kennedy Administration), who said that, by 1977, “the Russians had placed fission-fusion-fission superbombs in certain deep undersea trenches around the Philippines.” A related source believes that the Philippines are in the position of a “keystone” within the giant Pacific Tectonic Plate. Russia had already been setting off lower yield undersea weapons in other areas around the Pacific Ocean causing strong earthquakes.

Dr. Beter suggested that the intention was to relieve tensions all around the Pacific plate, except the Philippines where stresses would build to tremendous levels. Then, at a certain point, the bombs around the Philippines will be set off. It is expected that this will cause incredible earthquakes and tidal waves and ultimately devastate the American West Coast. Volcanoes erupting in the Philippines are an indication that stresses are building in the area. (Bilger adds that readers need to understand that earthquakes and volcanoes are intimately connected and work hand in hand, with the one sometimes triggering the other, and sometimes the reverse. An earthquake can open vents deep in the Earth which allow lava to flow up. In other cases, the stresses driving volcanic activity can also cause earthquakes).

Bilger then took note of a January 30, 1981 article in the Washington Post which reported that in 1979 there were 56 significant earthquakes in the world, and that by 1980 the annual figure was up to 71. He then added: “Coincidentally, in 1980 there was an increase in ELF transmissions by both Russia and the United States.”

Going forward to 1981, Bilger cited Lt. Col. Thomas Bearden, a nuclear engineer and the leading Tesla researcher in the U.S. He gave a lecture before the U.S. Psychotronics Association where he spoke of the standing waves produced by Tesla Magnifying Transmitters that were also discussed in Specula magazine in 1978. Bearden was, per Bilger, describing how HAARP works.

Bearden stated in part: “Then, what you do is change the frequency. If you change the frequency one way (by dephasing it), you dump the energy up in the atmosphere beyond the point on the other side of the Earth that you focused upon. As you start ionizing the air, you can change the weather flow patterns, the jet stream, etc. If you dump it gradually, real gradually, you influence the heck out of the weather. It's a great weather machine. If you dump it sharply, you won¹t get the little ionization like that. You will get flashes and fireballs (plasma) that will come down to the surface of the Earth. You can cause enormous weather changes over entire regions by playing that thing back and forth.”

Nicola Tesla

The above references to Tesla prompt these remarks. Niocola Tesla (1856 to 1943) was an 1884 immigrant to the United States from Serbia. He gained fame as perhaps the world’s most important inventor of electrical and electromagnetic applications. Today’s AC current used to power thousands of appliances (including our computers) came from his brilliant mind.

One of his most devoted projects was to take electricity from the heavens and make it freely available to people with minimal costs. In 1899, he went out to the mountains near Colorado Springs, CO and hooked up his free electricity scheme to the nearby town of Colorado Springs. Reportedly, his first experiment was so powerful that it blew the electric lights out in the town.

But 19th century and early 20th century inventor Thomas Edison was also busy on electricity as well. But Edison had the advantage because he was financed by the fat cat bankers, including the Rockefellers/Roggenfelders. This combine didn’t like what Tesla was doing so he was characterized by the controlled media as a “Mad Scientist.” Unable to get financing, Tesla’s plans for free energy died out. Edison and his money partners prevailed to establish electric power companies to sell energy commercially to the American people.

Tesla died a pauper in 1943. But both the old Soviet Union and the United States commenced a dedicated effort in WWII to locate, retrieve, secure and hide all of Tesla’s writings on electricity. His work quickly transitioned into Top Secret military projects. So his work passed out of the lime light for the next many years until the 1990s when the US HAARP program commenced, allegedly based on Tesla technology.


This backdrop takes us to this believed Tesla technology called HAARP. In the last dozen years or so, a number of writers have discussed HAARP at length and have suggested all kinds of possibilities on what it is doing with its huge field full of large antennas in Alaska beaming millions of watts of energy into the heavens for some ostensible purpose. I have read material by Nick Begich, Dick Eastman, Jesse Ventura (former Governor of MN), etc discussing the different theories.

One of the best reports I read was by an unnamed author who wrote at in an article on Do Devils Play this HAARP? On HAARP (the US High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program in Alaska), the report cited HAARP´s homepage and said: “HAARP was started in Alaska in 1993. HAARP will very quickly heat the ionosphere, which is the upper part of the atmosphere, with a focused and steerable electromagnetic beam. By suddenly lifting the ionosphere to high altitudes it can destroy incoming rockets. It is an experiment on the atmosphere and no one knows what it leads to.

“HAARP is for military purposes, being said to be able to wipe out communication over a wide area, penetrate the earth for many kilometers to search for tunnels, minerals, oil, subterranean military plants, detect low incoming planes. The Prime Argus Project looked into ways to cause earthquakes through deflection of the focused electromagnetic beam from the ionosphere on to a spot, where the land plates are pressing above each other, i.e. predilection earth quake zones.”

The report quoted an article of 25 years ago by Zbigniew Brzezinski that “HAARP can produce changes in the composition of the atmosphere and thus change the performance of the brain in very large populations –even make them uncapable to fight. Brzezinski had this in mind, too, writing on the Technetronic Era, where everybody will be controlled by a small elite. This is said to be brought about by Extremely Low Frequency ELF) waves, which is said to have been proved in thousands of experiments.” A Mr. Eastlund was also quoted that through the HAARP system they can change the weather, by sending ELF waves into the Van Allen Belts (the sun´s electromagnetic fields deflect cosmic radiation, thus influencing the formation of clouds).

The Danish writer then proceeded to bring up the recent Haiti earthquake and asked if it could be the work of HAARP? The story cited the Boston Globe of Jan 13, 2010 and its remarks on a light seen over Haiti the night before.

But My Purpose

As far as the speculations of Zbigniew Brzezinski, of some 25 years ago, this is very plausible. My check of Wikipedia on HAARP says that work on the HAARP Alaskan station started in 1993 and it was completed in 2007. Brzezinski could have known about the project and its purposes 25 years ago. As to earlier prototypes and their work of bombarding the heavens, who knows when and how this effort started. For sure, it was all clouded in a Top Secret classification so there is no way we can be sure of the backdrop on HAARP.

But my purpose here is not to get into any speculation on Brzezinski or what may have caused the Haiti earthquake. For my part, it could have been manmade or it could be strictly a phenomenon of nature. For the time being, I will leave that question as unresolved. But for purposes here, let’s digress to the situation in Iceland, Iran, Venezuela, and China which are the theme for this Goldsmiths.

Now Back to the Wisdom of Former Secretary of Defense William Cohen

Here, let us revisit Iceland once more about her new trouble with an erupting volcano. Based on the reports made by William Cohen and the many others cited above, is it possible that the tiny nation of Iceland is now faced with an erupting volcano because of its decision to oppose the Rothschild Cabal demands that Iceland pay them off for their losses? Thus, could this volcanic eruption problem in Iceland be tied to its decision to refuse to pay off the Rothschild Cabal masters?

Next, let’s motorize over to Iran, Venezuela and China and their tragic state of drought. This writer is not completely certain of what all the Rothschilds and their puppet states like the US are doing to manipulate weather and natural forces on earth; but I’m sure the present droughts in Venezuela, China and Iran are not the work of nature. There is something going on behind the scenes on these enemies of the Rothschild Cabal masters who rule Europe, North America and much of the rest of the world. Isn’t it strange that Rothschild puppet nations are doing good on rain while these three Rothschild Cabal enemies are in some of the worst droughts that they have had in a hundred years. To this list, we can also add the recent earthquake in China. Is there a connection?

Consequently, when Rothschild agent Geithner arrives in China in April, does he come to tell China what might happen if she refuses the Rothschild demands? In the case of Afghanistan and Iraq, Rothschild/US agents visited both of them in advance and told them in blunt terms either surrender their sovereignty or the US would invade and destroy them. Thus, I am old enough and watched events enough through the years that I would not put anything past Plato’s envisioned gold and silver rulers. The best thing to do is expect the worse and be happy if it doesn’t get that bad.

More on Weather

I have already cited the weather problem in various Goldsmiths over the years. In the Goldsmiths 99 (published Sep 10, 2009), I reported that the Cabal owned and directed puppets with the US government and the US government sponsored and directed weather modification program (under DARPA—the Defense Advanced Research Projects) began bringing drought and bad weather to nations that do not play on the Cabal team. There is much documentation establishing that DARPA is working on weather alteration/control (thru HAARP, chem-trails, etc). I have outlined some of this data above. has had numerous stories saying the plan is that by 2020 the US will control weather worldwide (this is the backdrop for the periodic El Nino and La Nina events—which by the way were unheard in the US until the arrival of modern history in the last ten years or so). My own take right now is that DARPA is busy bringing drought to nations which do not play on the US team (which translates to the Rothschild Cabal team since it is synonymous with the US team).

The chief beneficiary/curse of this focus by the Cabal and its colleagues at DARPA has been the Iranians. In this vein, Iran has had a series of very significant droughts which have greatly hurt agricultural production. I could also give numerous reports of news stories of awful drought and grain diseases in other non-Cabal controlled nations (to include Russia which has had her weather problems as well, complements of the Rothschild Cabal and its lackeys at DARPA).

One of the main points of the Mickey Mouse document (cited in Understanding Money and War XIV at was the capability and indeed the practice of the plutocratic bankers involved to cause wars and bring on attacks on nations which do not submit to the Cabal’s plutocratic rule. Iran, Iceland, Venezuela and China are four of those nations. I don’t have any problem seeing weather/volcanic/earthquake warfare as being used by the Cabal to attack and hurt nations around the world which do not submit to Cabal control.

In publishing the Goldsmiths 99, a reader wrote me and said: “Mr. Bradshaw: In recent commentaries, you opined that the cabal might be altering the weather. I find this hard to believe. Science has recently discovered that hot ionized solar plasma, galactic cosmic rays (charged protons from exploded stars) and other influences from outer space play a major role in determining cloud formation and weather on earth. I doubt that the cabal is able to exert any control over these awesome cosmic forces.”

While it may or may not be true that galactic cosmic rays play a major part on earth’s weather, it is true that DARPA has a weather control plan underway involving HAARP which attempts to guide and direct the jet stream across North America to bring moisture to various parts of the continent as desired. And what are chem-trails doing? Well, for one thing, they are polluting the atmosphere. One of the purposes of rain is to clean the air of pollutants. I submit that among other things, one of the fallouts of the chem-trail spraying operation is to produce rain in some areas.

As for as galactic powers to influence weather, I am in no position to judge how influential these forces could be. I know about HAARP and chem-trails. I also know that cloud seedings to make rain have been around for the last 70 or 80 years; and they are only the tip of the iceberg. I also know about DARPA’s plans; and I am assured that if DARPA has this capability, we can bank on it that the Rothschild Cabal controls it in some way since the Cabal controls the US government.

With this control, the Cabal is or will be in the position to determine which nations get rain and which do not. In this context, it is logical that they will be sure that rain falls on land that they own/control; and drought is destined in areas which are in revolt from their ruler ship.

Dick Eastman

In support of my comments above, here are some comments from Dick Eastman of Yakima, WA who has done extensive research on weather modification and its purposes. Here below are some excerpts from his Jan 2, 2010 article at on Telsa-Style Weather Control Since the Early 1990s.

In discussing chem-trails, he said that “there are those who argue that the laying of ionized cloud is part of a benevolent plan to save the earth from global warming due to greenhouse-effect-producing gases in the atmosphere. While it is true that physicist Edward Teller did make such a proposal, the last thing you should think is that weaponized weather modification has anything to do with the government secretly saving us from global warming. Global warming (is) a deception, the result of selecting the research, suppressing research, and differentially rewarding researchers for the conclusions they reach.

“Global warming is a cover for the use of weather technology by the most powerful people in the world for their own economic and geopolitical benefit. Global warming is more real than space aliens at Roswell or ray guns bringing down the twin towers of the WTC. Increased carbon dioxide is not a threat, but a potential boon to mankind. The global warming deception both conceals weather crimes (unlegislated crimes against humanity) for profit and it is used as an excuse for international agencies (controlled by the weather atrocity perpetrators themselves) to take over more of the economic activity of the human race…

“The conspiracy is that El Niño and other high-impact weather events really are under control of powerful private interests…

“One more thing: The people who are controlling the weather are more interested in destroying crops for geopolitical purposes (weaponized weather modification) and for economic purposes than for ‘benefiting farmers.’ If you buy agricultural commodities futures (rights to buy farm products in the future at a given price) and then destroy this crop around the world using CWM to raise the price (supply and demand) you really ‘make a killing’ in every sense of the word…

“The Rothschild Mafia has used weaponized clandestine weather modification, to create weather disasters which have been as profitable for lending to government financing emergency spending and reproduction as it has for positioning to profit from foreknown weather shocks to agricultural futures markets, energy use and so forth. But now the need is to disable the American population in the finishing strokes of a war of hidden sabotage (false-flag weather-catastrophes blamed on Mother Nature -- just as the Kleptastrophe has been blamed on impersonal market forces).

“Remember, the Rothschild Mafia can never be caught attacking anyone. That is why they have developed these indirect means made possible in the age of knowledge-advantage warfare that people don't even recognize as weapons being wielded by men. (The technologies available to the Rothschild Mafia with all the defense research and development corporations in every industrial country they control and with financial resources commensurate with the trillions they have been taking in from the bogus War on Terror and the Kleptastrophe operations against us that have drained us dry)…

“Discovering that global warming has been a fraud has helped us, although we have not been able to translate our discovery into the rollback of disinformation and bad legislation. Now bear in mind that global warming has just been a cover for the increased weather disasters from weaponized clandestine weather modification -- they needed something to blame for all of unusual death and destruction they have been causing.

“We have failed to come to agreement about 9-11, the Kleptastrophe, and the conspiracy of Zionist Bankers -- so I suspect that most people will be willing to let their minds wander far from what the mainstream news tells them... Last point: I am about 80 percent confident that the predicted record cold snaps are not just pure Rothschild Mafia luck… Hey, we made it through 2009. A year in which we learned a lot that will help us do better against the Rothschild Mafia next year…”

Eastman has researched and written about both chem-trails and HAARP. While he recognizes those applications by DARPA for military purposes (which he documents), he also came to the above conclusions on the use of weather warfare to benefit the powerful Rothschild connected bankers in their manipulation of the financial markets (so if the Icelandic volcano eruptions were man-made by the Cabal, what will the volcanic ash clouds worldwide do to agricultural food production this year and who will profit accordingly?). Though Eastman’s conclusions were on the present Rothschild use of weather manipulations to make current profits, my take is on a more sinister use in the future by the Cabal to completely control the worldwide production of food.

The Bottom Line

So the place we must come to is it possible that the Rothschild Cabal masters, using their puppets at DARPA, are now in the process of taking over nature to bring on natural calamities to nations which do not toe the line as the masters in London demand? Could the Cabal masters be behind the troubles now in Iceland, Iran, Venezuela and China? Along with punishing Rothschild Cabal enemies, would such events also open the door for some huge profits for Cabal insiders? Thus, if an insider with the Cabal had advance knowledge of the coming Icelandic volcano eruptions and resulting ash, could he have sold airline stocks short and made a barrel of profits (as interestingly happened in the 9/11 thing some years ago)?

In the way of a postscript, the latest news from Iceland has it that the IMF and Nordic states have jointly approved a loan to Iceland. While the backdrop on this development has not been revealed, it suggests that the way has been paved for Iceland to join the EU and make payments to the bankers as demanded by Rothschild ruled Britain and Holland. My guess is that slowly in the coming days the Cabal owned media will tell us what Iceland will do to get the loans being made. There is a high probability that the people of Iceland got the word that the Cabal will destroy them if they try to continue opposing the demands from the Rothschild Cabal masters. My take is that Iceland has or will surrender.

By the way, subscribers to can attest to the fact that I had reported some predictions weeks ago from one Cabal source about a big fall in April with the big drops coming around April 15-22. I had to almost apologize to subscribers on April 15th when we had not yet had any really big falls (though bonds and most commodities had taken a beating as predicted). But sure enough, April 16 came through with a hard drop in most everything but the dollar.

Putting these facts together, informed observers can verify that the evidence is substantial that the Icelandic volcano problems were pre-known. We can bank on it that Cabal insiders were already positioned to make a barrel of money on this deal. So, let me repeat the above question. Is there a connection between the troubles in Iceland, Iran, Venezuela and China and the demands of the Rothschild Cabal masters?

The bottom line here is that in this age of uncertainty and Rothschild Cabal fiat money manipulations, more and more people seem to be turning to gold.

Comment on Tesla, HAARP and Oil

Below is an interesting and informative comment by dsekou to the article, The Possibility Of Oil In Haiti Could Be Solution Or New Problem

1.nikola tesla in 1898 created a small earthquake in nyc with an oscillator that he attached to the support beams of his laboratory. the vibrations were causing the neighboring buildings to shake and tremble so violently that windows along the whole block were shattering and police broke down the door to his laboratory just as tesla smashed the little oscillator with a sledge hammer to make it stop.

2.tesla’s inventions were responsible for the alternating electrical current that today lights our cities and powers all electrical engines–in the process outdoing thomas edison, which of course, made a bitter enemy of a jealous edison. tesla not marconi invented radio. marconi ‘used’ tesla’s discoveries and claimed them as his own. tesla’s estate won the patent violation lawsuits against marconi and rca after tesla’s death. tesla invented the first remote controlled wireless radio wave device and also invented neon lighting.

3. before he died he was working on a method of defense to make war obsolete by allowing small nations to be the military equals of larger ones. but by then, the media had branded him as ‘crazy’ and said he was working on some kind of ‘death ray’.

4. upon his death the fbi immediately seized all of tesla’s research and personal papers and turned them over to the pentagon. it took years and years of lawsuits before the papers were finally returned to tesla’s family., ’star wars’ and a military research program called ‘haarp’ are the direct results of tesla’s research being twisted by the pentagon with deliberate destructive intent.

6.haarp shoots large amounts of electro-magnetic energy up into the higher regions of earth’s atmosphere which then acts like a huge mirror and reflects the energy back down and deep into the earth’s surface. the beams can be aimed to direct high amounts of energy to enter into the earth or beneath the oceans. haarp can be used like radar or sonar to find underground installations or to find minerals –like oil for instance–beneath the earth’s surface.

7. if the beam is focused long enough into an area where two or more of the earth’s tectonic plates meet the resulting vibrations can cause the plates to slip–thus an earthquake can occur.

8. the earth–like our own bodies– is a living system of balanced and interconnected electromagnetic energy–thus something like haarp has the potential–like a magnification of the ripples in a pond effect–to cause massive disruptions in balance beneath the earth’s surface and above the earth’s surface–as in disrupting weather patterns.

9. the earthquake in haiti was in january–in january, february and march there were similar and powerful earthquakes in venezuela, peru, chile , poland, chicago,alaska, los angles,afghanistan, china

10. the eastern portion of the Us was hit not only by a record NUMBER of snowstorms–but also with amounts of snowfall NEVER SEEN BEFORE IN THE HISTORY OF US RECORD KEEPING–’nor’easters’ as these storms are called form in the caribbean and head up the atlantic coast of the Us–also causing the worst flooding in parts of new england in 200 years. veteran weather specialists said on the news again and again quotes like, “in 40 years of reporting the weather , i’ve never seen anything like what we have seen this year”. in parts of europe this year RECORD rain and snowfalls caused record flooding.

11. it is a basic fact that areas of the world that are prone to earthquakes are also where the most volcanic activity takes place–there is a direct connection between the earth’s tectonic activity and the earth’s volcanic activity.
what happened in iceland this past week that caused almost all air flights over western europe to be suspended –because of huge amounts of volcanic ash spewed into the air? “for every action there is an opposite and equal reaction.” every little playground kid knows if you push one side of a see saw down the other side goes up…

12. it was reported that the university of tokyo monitors the Us haarp emissions of energy that take place from alaska(where haarp antennae are located) it was also reported that the haarp antennae were turned on and emitting huge amounts of energy into the atmosphere “24/7″ for the three days prior to the earthquake in haiti–and stopped s soon as the earthquake was over.

13. the Us pentagon’s southern command was running war games–drills and simulations– of a ‘hurricane’ type disaster striking haiti– the day before the earthquake hit–so the military was already ready when they got the call to go into haiti.

14. the pentagon, fema, and cia were running drills about airplanes being hi-jacked by terrorists and crashed into important Us buildings such as the world trade center towers, the pentagon, and cia headquarters–on or shortly before the 9-11 attacks. the london subway terrorist bombings took place AS scotland yard was running drills –war games–about terrorists putting bombs on the london subways–in the EXACT locations where the actual bombs went off that day –but this is all coincidence and ‘conspiracy theory’ –right?
Addendum: on the subject of war games –the Us pentagon and britain’s defense ministry had joint war games scheduled in the indian ocean region for the fall of 2001 which amazingly, put significant numbers of the ships, planes and ground forces of both nations fully armed and on the ready and conveniently close to afghanistan when it was decided to go to war against that nation as a result of the 9-11 attacks.
when negotiations between the Us and the taliban for the building of oil and natural gas pipelines from the caspian sea region of the former soviet republics and across afghanistan began to breakdown in the summer of 2001 –the Us promised the taliban either, “a carpet of gold or a carpet of bombs”.

15. the right wing in this country habitually covers up their inept crimes by pointing the finger at anyone who refuses to believe their ridiculous lies and calling them “conspiracy theorists”. brains programmed by “reality tv” immediately shut down and refuse to even consider the evidence and drink another ‘40′ and tune in to “american idol” , “the kardashians ” or “being bobby brown” or whatever the latest distraction from reality is.

btw the Us knew about the oil in the haiti, jamaica, cuba region for decades–look at the destabilization policies of the Us towards these three nations for the past 40 years–add in the oil factor and their strategic location in the caribbean and now you know why.

Volcanic Ash Threat in Europe was All a 'Mistake', Authorities Say
Published April 20, 2010 by:
Luis R. Miranda

Once Again Computer Models Did the Trick for Scientists

It was not a volcano or its ash what caused major disruptions in air travel for the past several days, but a bunch of flawed computer models scientists used to forecast how the volcanic eruption would affect air travel throughout the European continent. As reported yesterday, other reasons are being looked at to explain why flights were suspended if the famous ash cloud did not reach Europe in the way it was originally described. Today, authorities are blaming defective computer models and not the volcanic eruption.

According to Matthias Ruete, director general for mobility and transport in Europe, the computer models used to make a decision on whether or not the air space would remain open, were flawed due to the fact scientists used incomplete science and limited data. The closure of air space, which caused great disruption in passenger and cargo transport from and to the old continent, stranding thousands of people and amounting to loses of hundreds of millions of dollars per day, does not come as a surprise. Scientists who claim that man causes global warming, also based their calculations and forecasts on flawed, incomplete and dubious data. This was discovered when e-mails and documents from the University of East Anglia were let out on the web.

"It is a black box in certain areas," Matthias Ruete, said, asserting that the assumptions used in the models were not based on scientific evidence. Apparently, authorities in Europe were not sure about certain issues and questions involving the amount of ash at specific heights and places, how hazardous it would be and the rate at which the ash would fall from the sky. "It's one of the elements where, as far as I know, we're not quite clear about it," he revealed.

As reported yesterday, some airlines even conducted test flights in order to determine whether their planes would be able to withstand the effects of the now confirmed fictitious ash. Companies like KLM, Air France and Lufthansa sent planes up and all indications pointed out that the risk was minimum or none.

It appears that scientists and authorities decided to close air space, and in the process cause grave stress to an economic system that is already shaky. The current levels of outstanding debt many of the companies that revolve around commerce and air travel as well as that of European and other governments provides very little margin of error for this kind of mistakes, however those who oversee air safety did not take that into account when making up their minds about what to do with transatlantic flights.

This computer model errors along with poor judgment still do not explain why if there was any kind of threat to air travel, military planes from European countries and the U.S. maintained and still continue to execute exercises that are part of the Brilliant Ardent 10 program. The admittance of wrongdoing does not explain if and how the Coronal Mass Ejections (CME's) may have influenced on weather patterns, plate tectonics or volcanic activity. We tried to obtain information from Dr. David H. Hathaway, a NASA scientist and expert in CME, but he has not returned our e-mail. "If you take the situation across the Atlantic, there the advice would probably be: don't fly over the volcano. Otherwise, it is up to you to take the precautions necessary," Mr Ruete said. Many people are now calling for the adoption of standards used in the United States, where it is up to the airlines to decide whether it is safe to fly or not. European standards establish that member states have the prerogative to make those decisions, but all decisions made for the past week have been made by computer models, it seems. Unfortunately, computers cannot be fired.

Coronal Mass Ejection is the Issue in Europe, Not a Volcanic Ash Cloud
Published April 19, 2010 by:
Luis R. Miranda

It is Just Not Coincidental that Three Significant Events Occurred at the Same Time. The Volcanic Eruption, the Military Exercise and the Coronal Mass Ejections

It is of everyone's knowledge the kind of disruptions the volcanic eruption in Iceland caused to international travel in Europe. Due to this eruption and the huge amount of ash reported to be coming out of the volcano, it is understandable that air space is closed for the safety of the people who intended to make their ways around the continent and across the Atlantic Ocean. However, some information has come to my attention that I think is important to share with the public, since the authorities are not doing it.

Although, as I mentioned before, air travel is banned for the moment, there are some facts that do not follow the same trend. For example, why is the Keflavic International Airport in Iceland still open? Is the real disruptor of air transport really volcanic ash or a Coronal Mass Ejection (CME)? Is European airspace being kept clear to prevent people seeing something significant out of aircraft windows? Is European airspace being kept clear for military defensive purposes or for military offensive purposes? Whose military?

Volcanic eruptions are nothing rare nowadays. Volcanic activity is seen daily around the world, and there are volcanoes erupting daily around the globe. So why is this particular eruption so special? Maybe it's not. There is another event happening at the same time this eruption is taking place. A large NATO Live Exercise originated out of Germany on April 12 and running up until April 22 is also taking place in European airspace. The exercise includes participants like the U.S. Air Force stationed in Germany and other places in the old continent.

Reports from Germany, Austria and other locations in Europe reported clear and blue skies up to April 17, as it can be seen in this image dated April 17, 2010. Enter the following report from

"In Germany we experienced the most beautiful day of the year. No clouds, clear sky, not the slightest sign of dust or ash in the atmosphere. To confirm my own observation I checked the 1200 UTC satellite picture with the same result: A large high pressure area stretching from England and France via the North Sea, Germany, the Alps all the way across Poland to the Russian border with winds from the east in central Germany. You can see the Sat Pic via the link below."

This information contradicts the ash cloud forecast to engulf all European airspace. Air space over Ramstein Airforce Base in Germany has also remained opened throughout the emergency. Ramstein is the main location from which operations in the Middle East are coordinated. There have not been any interruptions in the operations conducted at Ramstein, as military airplanes seem to be able to cope with volcanic ash. German Airline Lufthansa conducted several flights in order to test the possibility of restarting normal transportation activity. The result of those tests were no damage or any other problems for the aircraft.

"In addition to air assets, tactical employment of Theater Missile Defense and Ground Based Air Defense assets will be extensively exercised." Missile defense is a system, weapon, or technology involved in the detection, tracking, interception and destruction of attacking missiles. Originally conceived as a defense against nuclear-armed Intercontinental ballistic missiles, its application has broadened to include shorter-ranged non-nuclear tactical and theater missiles", continues the report.

May these military exercises be related to a Coronal Mass Ejections? Well, one has to say it is just coincidental that three significant events occurred at the same time. The volcanic eruption, the military exercise and the coronal mass ejections. See Coronal Mass Ejection from April 13, 2010. According to the Solar Influences Data Center, significant solar activity is expected to occur between 2010 and 2012 and some of it was expected to happen beginning April 14. Find the report here.

"A Coronal Mass Ejection or CME linked to the eruption of a polar crown filament was detected on April 13 by LASCO and other coronagraphs. It is partially halo, with a main propagation direction to the North of the ecliptic plane. There is a risk that the southern flank of the CME crosses the Earth, triggering enhanced geomagnetic activity, not before late April 16 or more likely on April 17."Although air travel is supposed to be interrupted for several more days, reports issued as late as Sunday expressed the possibility that some flight activity would resume on Monday April 17. Is this also a coincidence? The solar activity was supposed to end on April 17, was it not? Also, note that although the volcanic eruption is real and the ash is real too, no image shown anywhere has confirmed the massive cloud of ash all over Europe as it has been reported by the main stream media. Vasts areas of the continent have remained clear throughout the emergency. So why close most European Air Space? Please stay tuned for more details.

Letter to the Editor

Why do the media neglect chemtrails?
Rose Damour
New Times SLO
The following article was posted on April 21st, 2010, in the New Times
Volume 24, Issue 38

I’m responding to Mark Hoffman’s letter (“Contrails are not government spraying,” April 8). The contrail/chemtrail argument has been around for more than a decade. Neither our politicians nor our newscasters report on this constant “phenomenon” of jets flying overhead spewing out something, whether it is water or chemicals. Personally, it’s hard to believe water condensation from jets could leave such long-lasting pseudo cloud trails that spread and linger until our beautiful sky turns into a grey cloudy mess. If these contrails are the result of larger, faster, higher-flying jets at different altitudes, then maybe we should turn our attention to toxic jet fuel being burned into greenhouse gases, and the waste dropping into our breathing air. This would be a better use of our time than as Hoffman wrote, “wishing that the airline industry actually would get paid by the government to spray the masses …” Is he not among the masses?

I suspect these jets are having a profound impact on our health, skies, and weather. I question whether allergies people are experiencing lately are the result of nature or whether they are the result of man-made airborne compounds.

Others are engaging even in an eco-type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves.

So there are plenty of ingenious minds out there that are at work finding ways in which they can wreak terror upon other nations. It’s real, and that’s the reason why we have to intensify our efforts, and that’s why this is so important.

In-Your- Face Propaganda on the Rise!

Thanks Michael for the link! Btw, Tavistock Institute is in London and they have been/are headquarters for various mind control/brainwashing techniques - very evil place.

Let's help wake people up w/ this psych propoganda. You will begin to notice similar campaigns in other ads/movies/video games.

Found this here. The text didn't copy but it says, "Marathon Fever. Affecting Everyone" which is interesting. The words "Affecting Everyone" is an understatement when it comes to chemtrails. And the word "Fever" normally refers to being sick or infected which is what chemtrails do. This hidden in plain sight message says a lot!

Chemtrails in the News... again!

Two local musicians are researching mysterious trails in the sky.

Glenn Davis and Matt Goodwin, who are best known for playing at the Gun Club, are part of a growing movement of people concerned about chemtrails, the mysterious exhaust streams from jets which remain in the sky for hours afterward. Unlike normal contrails from aircraft, chemtrails stay in the sky and are usually seen in a grid pattern. The last few years, they say mysterious cloud formations have been cropping up around the world.

The phenomenon has resulted in federal bureaucracies getting thousands of phone calls, e-mails and letters from people who want to know what exactly is being done. People have reported seeing unmarked white planes, and the white chemtrails which can be in a tic-tac-toe shapes, according to an article in USA Today.

The issue has been featured on various documentaries with former government officials explaining how government tanker jets are spraying aerosols in the air at high altitudes, as commercial traffic is routed below.

Goodwin is one of the people who wants answers. On Wednesday morning he identified a grid pattern in the sky which remained for hours over State Street in Beloit.

Davis urges people to start becoming aware of the chemtrails, watching the skies with their binoculars. They can use the Web site which tracks flights,, to see which aircraft are accounted for and which aren’t. He said typically after a grid pattern is spotted, that there will be a foggy haze and that people may report increased breathing or sinus problems.

Eventually Davis would like to start an activist group, but for now just wants to raise awareness of the issue.

Davis first heard about the theory in 2004 from Goodwin. He noticed the mysterious grid patterns would linger as long as two to three hours and then spread out and expand, creating a haze in the area. Soon he started taking photos and videos of it.

As he started identifying the grids he grew increasingly worried about the potential health risks. He believes there are harmful chemicals which are leaving the chemtrails in the air for so long.

Davis has contacted local airports, the FAA and the EPA, but still hasn’t been able to get any concrete answers. He is told that chemtrails are normal condensation trails. Some have said that new types of jet engines could be responsible for the lingering exhaust. Many scientists have refuted the theory and prowl Internet chat rooms to try to correct what they believe is misinformation.

Back in 2000, the Environmental Protection Agency, NASA, the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Oceanic and Atmosphere Administration joined forces to publish a fact sheet explaining the science of contrail formation. The Air Force has also refuted the theory.

However, Davis and many others still aren’t convinced. Web sites are full of potential explanations including population control, weather control or forced inoculations to protect the population in the event of germ warfare. Because the government is not being open about what it’s doing, Davis said people are prone to come up with some interesting theories on what is going on.

Davis believes it may be a weather warefare study being conducted by the U.S. government in conjuction with HAARP, the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program.

HAARP, located in Alaska, is a scientific endeavor aimed at studying the properties and behavior of the ionosphere, with particular emphasis on being able to understand and use it to enhance communications and surveillance systems for both civilian and defense purposes, according to the HAARP Web site.

Davis however, believes HAARP may be more honed in on manipulating the weather for warfare and that the mysterious tanker jets could be leaving mercury and barium aerosol chemtrails in the air to act as a conduit to frequencies emitted from HAARP.

Goodwin and Davis aren’t giving up on their investigations of chemtrails. They say they’ve seen and recorded them. After three years of erratic weather in the Stateline Area, a tomato blight and his own sinus problems and nosebleeds, he’s convinced something is going on.

“Just look to the skies,” Goodwin said.

Today received the following email and video clips from Michael Murphy:

Due to the many corporate and political interest$ associated with chemtrails/geo-engineering, most politicians are either ignoring or running from this issue. While many politicians like Marcy Winograd, will not address the issue and will avoid even commenting (video coming soon), I have managed to find a few bold politicians who are willing to talk about it. Both Congressional candidate Mark Reed and California Governor Candidate Chelene Nightingale are some of the few who are bold enough stand up for the people and go public. Please watch, share and spread!!!!!!

Folks, we are in a real crisis!!!! We need to make this a public political issue. Please help in our efforts and please do not support any candidate that is complicit in the cover-up of these crimes!!!!

'Solar Radiation Management' or Manhattan Project 2.0?

Shielding Electronics from Electromagnetic Pulses

Every technology on the market today is based on alternating current technologies in relation with semiconductor technologies and if these were seriously threatened this would mean, in the final analysis, that everything that we nowadays need to live, work and recreate ourselves, could be destroyed.
-- Uwe Behnken --

University of Los Andes (ULA) senior lecturer in political sciences, Jutta Schmitt writes: It's intriguing. Just barely a week after the Asilomar Conference on Climate Intervention Technologies had taken place in Pacific Grove, California, we heard honorable knights for the defense of global climate integrity, such as the American Enterprise Institute's Resident Fellow and Co director of the AEI geo-engineering Project Lee Lane, advocate a global imposition of geo-engineering technologies on behalf of the advanced, industrialized states of the world in the firm conviction, that "geo-engineering experiments shouldn't require global agreement," because these would in any case be guided by the shining light of the government of the United States and its noble constitutional obligation to promote the welfare of the American people. This is how Lane evokes 'American national interest,' this magic, self-sufficient concept that justifies the use of any means in order to obtain, that is, impose the desired objective. (1)

Why declare geo-engineering experiments a matter of 'national interest' (read: national security interest)?

Why not declare the well-being of the planetary climate and overall ecosystems a matter of national or planetary security interest for that matter, and subsequently demand the immediate discontinuance of irrational profit production and unbound consumerism, which got us into this mess in the first place?

Why this sudden, violent interest in geo-engineering experiments by scientists, international climate panels, United Nations entities, policy centers, research facilities, scientific communities and even Think Tanks with their scores of fellows and scholars?

Why did we not see the same violent interest with regard to a binding commitment at the Rio, Kyoto or Copenhagen Earth Summits? And why call for the global imposition of geo-engineering technologies on behalf of the 'advanced, more industrialized states' of the world?

Furthermore, if geo-engineering experiments are all of a sudden being considered imperative, why does the so-called scientific community, as well as civil and military authorities in various countries of the world deny the fact that one of the proposed climate intervention techniques, pertaining to Solar Radiation Management, has already and progressively been implemented on a considerably large scale since years?

The hard facts on the ground -- or in the sky, for that matter - don't go away by denying them. Solar Radiation Management by 'injection of sulfate or other materials into the stratosphere' as proposed by the working agenda of the past Asilomar Conference on Climate Intervention Technologies and as seen, photographed, filmed, documented, studied and analyzed during years by ordinary citizens, environmental activists, air traffic controllers, radar technicians, alternative journalists, meteorologists, chemists and physicians, has been occurring over North America and Europe since the nineties. The question is, if the massive blasting into the stratosphere of a mixture of metals and polymers to form a haze-like layer in the skies in order to deflect solar radiation is actually that good of an idea, given the extreme toxicity of the materials being sprayed and given the fact that they finally do come down back to the surface of the Earth.

Thus, to a far-sighted, ecological, nature-preserving mind it seems utterly illogical to resort to this kind of measures which have a heavily contaminating effect on the overall environment -- air, water, soils, humans, animals, plants, that is, life on the planet as such.

For the sake of (relative) brevity, we will not go into detail to describe and explain Chemtrail Spraying in this article, but instead encourage our readers to get active and do a thorough research on the Internet by themselves. Suffice it to say here, that the until now publicly denied operations of ongoing Chemtrail Spraying are, in fact, related to 'Solar Radiation Management,' consisting of the massive injection of a combination of metallic and other particles -- microscopic in scale -- into the stratosphere. Interestingly and essential for us to note, it was the late Edward Teller, member of the Manhattan Project and father of the Hydrogen Bomb, co-founder and director of the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, who proposed this geo-engineering technique together with Roderick Hyde and Lowell Wood and who designed a variety of mixtures according to the specific tasks they have to perform, among which figure the deployment of "electrically-conducting sheets" or "metallic 'nets' of ultra-fine mesh-spacing" in the stratosphere. (2) Equally interesting is the fact, that Teller himself did not only doubt that society's carbon dioxide emissions were responsible for global warming, but questioned global warming as such, when stating in a 1997 article, titled 'The Planet needs a Sunscreen,' that "It's wonderful to think that the world is so very wealthy that a single nation -- America -- can consider spending $100 billion a year on a problem that may not exist." (3) He explicitly repeated this doubt in a 2002 co-authored paper on 'Active Climate Stabilization.' (4) So, by all means, why then seriously bother about the research, development and actual deployment of 'geo-engineering techniques' such as spraying the stratosphere with chemicals, in order to to 'fend off solar radiation' ?!

Considering the counter-productivity of the whole concept of 'solar radiation management' -- deflecting solar radiation by creating a layer of highly toxic, artificial 'clouds' may as well block and trap outbound heat from the Earth and thus worsen 'global warming' -- the question arises, why it is actually being done.

The very logics of global capitalism and capitalist globalization that dictates each and every consideration, each and every action undertaken by the transnational corporations of this world and their political and military executives on a national and international scale, and which impose their decisions on billions of people, indicates that Solar Radiation Management is NOT being conducted to 'mitigate the effects of global warming' but to address an immediate problem, as severe as that of global warming for the survival of human civilization as we have known it, and which can best be described as the Electronic Achilles Heel of Modern Civilization.

In a 2009 interview with Ludwig Glinz about 'Sferic Frequencies, Semiconductor Technologies and their effective Preservation and Protection,' Uwe Behnken, founder of LiveNet Concept 2010 and long time activist against Chemtrail Spraying, suggests that the massive injection of toxic substances into the stratosphere ever since the nineties bears a direct relation to the protection of highly sensitive semiconductor technologies.

"[..] Natural electromagnetic pulses are known to everybody ever since the film 'The Day After' where we learnt what happens if these are created artificially by means of the explosion of an atom bomb. If an atomic weapon explodes, the electromagnetic pulse causes semiconductor technologies to stop functioning. The same electromagnetic pulses can be registered in the event of elevated sferic frequencies or nuclear electromagnetic pulses stemming from elevated sun activities, and from our perspective this is another reason why it is undertaken to repel these sferic frequencies with the help of toxic substances, like aluminium oxides and barium-chlorides so as to protect semiconductor technologies." (5)

For a better understanding of this statement and its consequences, we'll briefly examine some basic concepts related to semiconductor technology and the reasons for its growing vulnerability.

All modern technology is based on semiconductor technology, used in the production of microelectronic integrated circuits (microchips) on an ever more minute scale and with an ever greater number of in-built 'components' per unit, so to speak. No applied technology in our computerized age, be it in the realm of production, energy, communication, trading, finance, transportation, scientific research and development, space exploration and military operations, works without semiconductor technology. A semiconductor is a material like silicon or germanium (6) characterized by an "intermediate conductivity" which oscillates between that of a conductor and an insulator and which displays a rapid variation of conductivity depending on temperature. The current in semiconductors is either carried by the flow of electrons or by the flow of positively-charged "holes" in the electron structure of the material. An external electrical field may change a semiconductor's resistivity or 'behavior' for that matter. (7)

One of the problems related to semiconductor technology and as derived from some of its specific characteristics is, that upon exposure to various types of particles of atmospheric radiation -- alpha particles, various ions, protons, and neutrons which can 'hit' the device -- it can change state or alter its output, leading to an error. This phenomenon is widely known by the manufacturers and has been called 'Single Event Effect' (SEE), which, in turn, is classified in three basic categories: A soft error or 'single event upset' (SEU), a soft or hard error or 'single event latch-up (SEL) and a hard failure or 'single event burnout' (SEB).

In the Atmospheric Radiation Effects Whitepaper, prepared by Ken Vranich in 2007, this author discusses the growing impact of atmospheric radiation effects on semiconductor devices, specifically the impact on avionics, identifying natural atmospheric radiation as the overriding cause of Single Event Effects or device failures due to the fact that semiconductor technology undergoes constant sophistication, which means it's being performed on an ever more minute scale. The scale we are talking about is so tiny that the collision of neutrons with the semiconductor material results in the deposition of a charge in this material and thus leads to an alteration of its state or even to the destruction of the device. The author explains these characteristic errors and failures of semiconductor devices as follows:

"Single event upset (SEU) is a condition that causes corruption of data or logic state in a device resulting in erroneous output. This is a soft error, meaning that data could be updated or corrected or the part reset and normal functionality would be resumed. ... Single event latchup (SEL) is a condition in some [type of semiconductors] where the energy deposited locally in a device by the single particle has turned on parasitic transistors causing high current through the device. ... This SEL usually causes loss of device functionality. ... Single event burnout (SEB) is a condition in a high voltage device (voltages of 500 or 600 volts) resulting from the energy deposition by a single particle leading to a feedback mechanism that exceeds the breakdown voltage and therefore destroys the device. ... Single Event Effects can also cause secondary breakdown in bipolar junction transistors (BJTs), resulting in burnout of the transistor ... " (8)

The Atmospheric Radiation Effects Whitepaper deals essentially with the uncomfortable fact that the failure rate in semiconductor devices has been increasing exponentially due to the steady advancement of semiconductor technology, making them not only vulnerable to high-energy or fast neutrons, but also to low-energy or slow (thermal) neutrons. The author estimates that it will take years until the big manufacturers of integrated circuits will respond to this challenge and warns of the unprecedented consequences that this will have, in this case for aviation electronics, concerning both commercial as well as military avionics and which may lead to the severe limitation of operations or even grounding of aircraft, due to intolerably high processor failure rates. For a combination of technical factors which the author does not specify, he identifies the military Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV's), crucial in America's ongoing and future warfare operations around the planet, as the type of aircraft most vulnerable to this threat, mainly because they are composed of so called 'commercial-off-the-shelf equipment,' leading to what the author says is an "unacceptably high probability of 'loss of command and control.'" (9)

As for the natural causes of atmospheric radiation and their effects on semiconductor devices, the author explains that the exposure to the range of potentially hazardous particles increases with growing latitude and altitude, especially during times of elevated sun activity. As far as the latter is concerned, the author stresses the importance of solar events which can heavily impact radiation levels and thus significantly increase Single Event Effect rates:

"The sun on an eleven year cycle produces varying sizes of solar flares. These flares send out energetic particles that strike the earth and can affect the entire planet, but especially in the Polar Regions where the earth's magnetic field is weakest. These particles can cause an increase in the radiation that an aircraft sees by a factor ranging from 10-1000X. The next projected solar peak where these levels could occur is 2011." (10)

In this context and with regard to the growing vulnerability of semiconductor technology, in this case in aircraft, the author explains that "using today's parts could translate into a 10-20% processor failure rate during a single flight on an aircraft in northern latitudes during a moderate solar event," thus calling into question the "ability of these products to perform as advertised." He concludes that "for avionics suppliers, this has the potential to create an intolerable liability and field support issue. For the commercial and military end users, this can translate into types of aircraft that would operate with limited mission capabilities or flight restrictions in certain geographic locations and grounding during significant solar events." (11)

Considering the impact of sun activities and solar events on semiconductor technology, we can understand the growing importance of solar event 'forecasts.' In May 2009, a team of scientists from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) sponsored by NASA, has revised the earlier peak prediction from 2007 which foresaw a peak in 2011, and estimates that Solar Cycle number 24 will peak in May 2013 with an intensity expected to be below the average. According to NASA Science News, however,

"Even a below-average cycle is capable of producing severe space weather. ... The great geomagnetic storm of 1859, for instance, occurred during a solar cycle of about the same size we're predicting for 2013. The 1859 storm -- known as the "Carrington Event" after astronomer Richard Carrington who witnessed the instigating solar flare -- electrified transmission cables, set fires in telegraph offices, and produced Northern Lights so bright that people could read newspapers by their red and green glow. A recent report by the National Academy of Sciences found that if a similar storm occurred today, it could cause $1 to 2 trillion in damages to society's high-tech infrastructure and require four to ten years for complete recovery." (12)

This is more than a good reason for a really big headache and for mobilizing the world's best scientists in order to research and develop methods capable of shielding modern electronics from the effects of atmospheric radiation! Ken Vranich's observations and subsequent warnings regarding the decreasing reliability of semiconductor technology in the realm of avionics have been discussed earlier by experts of the US military, who fear that world-wide military operations could be dramatically endangered by an increasing dependence on ever more sophisticated electronic devices.

In this sense, Major Scott W. Merkle, in a 1997 paper titled 'Non-Nuclear EMP: Automating the Military May Prove a Real Threat' and which addresses the man-made causes of Electromagnetic Pulses (EMP), first describes the catastrophic consequences that the 'classic' scenario of the detonation of a high-altitude nuclear bomb, for example above Nebraska, would have, whose electromagnetic pulse would render each and every computerized circuit in the continental United States, southern Canada and northern Mexico, useless. In describing the effects, Merkle cites a 1982 writing of no less a man than Edward Teller, regarding heavy electromagnetic pulse radiation:

"Today there is almost universal dependence on electronic computers. They are used by first-graders as well as research engineers. Industry, communications, financial records, are all at stake here. In the event of heavy EMP radiation, I suspect it would be easier to enumerate the apparatus that would continue to function than the apparatus that would stop." (13)

After revising the magnitude and probability of an EMP delivered by the detonation of a high-altitude nuclear bomb, which "could conceivably pulse us back to, shall we say, a simpler time when operations orders were done orally with a sandtable," Merkle proceeds to identify in general terms the threat coming from the development of advanced non-nuclear EMP weapons which, he observes, has started off a new arms race. (Although existent at the time, pulsed, directed energy beam weapons like HAARP systems are not explicitly mentioned in this paper). Considering the ever growing dependence of the United States' military on technological progress, Merkle regards the "pushing of the technology envelope" at all costs a serious problem, as "one burst of EMP" will render the most sophisticated equipment inoperable, stripping the high-tech infantry soldier of the 21st century naked and leaving him in the combat field without his "wondrous gadgets and gizmos," to just name one example. Merkle thus concludes:

"Non-nuclear EMP has the potential to reduce the battlefield equation to very simple terms ... as the Joint Surveillance and Target Attack Radar System, All-Source Analysis System, and most other "high tech" intelligence connectivity systems will not be working." (14)

Finally and with regard to the same concern, an assessment of 'Electromagnetic Pulse Threats to US Expeditionary Operations in 2010,' written by US Air Force Major Colin R. Miller, comes to the conclusion that both, nuclear and non-nuclear electromagnetic pulse weapons "represent one of the most ominous threats to US National Security in the near term." Miller subsequently suggests three types of counter-measures: Firstly, implementing specific protection or 'system-hardening' of semiconductor devices at the manufacturer level, secondly, individual shielding of crucial, high-tech components against EMP, and thirdly, shielding larger environments against EMP:

"Shielding the environment is a cost-effective solution for EMP protection when a large number of essential electronic devices are collocated. An Air Operations Center (AOC) provides a good example. Incorporating a grounded metallic shield into the building structure and surge protecting power, communications, and antenna lines could protect an entire AOC from EMP. Mobile systems require a different means, such as a Faraday cage, which can protect individual components. A Faraday cage is simply a metallic mesh built around an electronic circuit (such as a fighter aircraft flight control computer) that protects it from EMP." (15)

Given the magnitude and severity of the exponentially growing threat for omnipresent, modern semiconductor technology (and thus modern civilization as we have known it) from nuclear and non-nuclear electromagnetic pulses, from both, natural and man-made sources as shown and documented in the paragraphs above, and connecting back with Uwe Behnken's statement we've mentioned at the beginning and which upholds a direct relation between the injection of toxic particles into the stratosphere and the protection of semiconductor technologies, let us put the whole concept of 'Solar Radiation Management' or 'Solar Radiance Engineering' as recently proposed by climate scientists, into a different perspective.

Considering that the late Edward Teller, father of the Hydrogen Bomb and first-hand expert of the EMP effects that result upon their detonation in space, who in the late nineties and as mentioned earlier, doubted that global warming is anthropogenic (caused by humans) and who even questioned global warming as such, nevertheless suggested that the Earth needed a 'sunscreen,' purpose for which he had a specific mixture of metals and chemicals developed at National Livermore Laboratories for the massive injection into the stratosphere to 'cool' the earth with a 'sheet of superfine, reflective mesh,' the following questions / hypothesis arise for further, urgent investigation and research:

1. Is 'Solar Radiation Management' or 'Solar Radiance Engineering' -- supposedly designed to mitigate the effects of global warming -- a smokescreen for the general world public behind which another objective is being pursued, that has nothing to do with 'global warming'?

2. Has the massive blasting of metallic particles into the stratosphere been designed to create and uphold a permanent 'metallic shield' in the form of a 'superfine mesh' as suggested by Teller, to build the equivalent of a huge kind of 'Faraday Cage' over certain regions of the Earth in order to protect semiconductor technology from being rendered useless by major, natural or man-made, nuclear and/or non-nuclear, electromagnetic pulse events?

3. Is the bringing-out and upholding of this superfine mesh of metallic particles coupled with HAARP technologies, and if so, in which way?

4. Other than shielding technology, which military applications derive from a superfine mesh of metallic particles in the stratosphere, that have electrically-conductive properties?

5. Considering that until now the vast part of experimental injection of particles into the stratosphere seems to have taken place above NATO countries (16), could it be derived from this that NATO is actively-preemptively preparing for nuclear or non-nuclear electromagnetic pulse events?

6. Are we seeing version 2.0 of the Manhattan Project, this time entrusted with the mission to develop a large-scale shield to fend off the devastating effects of Electromagnetic Pulses, employing thousands of scientists, experts, technicians, military and civil personnel without them knowing what purpose they are working for, by keeping information deliberately fragmented and separate?

7. Is this the real reason why "geo-engineering experiments shouldn't require global agreement" but be imposed on behalf of 'the advanced industrialized states of the world,' as advocated by scholars of US Think Thanks that are not precisely known for their love for Mother Nature?

From the countries of the Global South, from Latin America, from Venezuela, we call for a global investigation into these matters, for a global debate and for global, transparent and informed agreement with regard to alternative ways to protect technology, the environment, all forms of life on the planet and planet Earth as such!

We say NO to whatever techniques that, for whatever reason, deliberately modify any of the geophysical subsystems of the Earth!

We say NO to interfering with planet Earth's geophysical integrity!
